    LOVE this apartment. Everything is perfect. Especially the maps – I love maps.

  2. There is a lot to love here, but I especially love the “embrace messy hair” print – amen sister!

  3. Hi Lisa!

    This is too coincidental! I was checking out your site just last night and thinking about how I must start reading more often – it’s great! Thank you so much for featuring my apartment. I love all the little labels, haha.

    Keep in touch!

  4. Absolutely loving those maps

  5. So pretty! Love the brick wall, the aqua, mint green & pink palette and yes, those maps! Also the motto of embracing messy hair, cute print and I’m completely on board with that!

  6. That’s one of the first times I’ve ever seen that dark green color work for my taste. And we had an afghan like that on the back of our couch for most of my childhood. I’d kind of forgotten that that’s probably the reason I love chevrons.

    Also, can I just say that I love the imperfection of that couch? It actually looks like people use it!

  7. I loved this apartment too! Something about the color palette just works, and I adore the bookshelves. Also love the exposed brick wall and that comfy looking couch. The throw on the bed is so nice too, love the colors.
